Fortunately SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties professionals have the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem.

Call SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties professionals
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties professionals. A representative will ask you a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed.
Inspection & Damage Assessment
Your property will be carefully inspected for signs of mold using technology designed to detect hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose or other organic material and water which can be hidden in plain view.
Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the clean up process.
Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air. SERVPRO of Grays Harbor & Pacific Counties technicians utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress.
Removing Mold & Mold Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Anti fungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and flooring, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
